Product description

Review

A latter-day version of La Ronde . . . hilarious and comically naughty . . . the escapades are underlaid by genuine affection for the characters and a genuine desire to entertain. (The Sunday Times)

'TUSCAN SOUP is a thoroughly, unashamedly, gloriously romantic romp through the Italian countryside with a motley, hilarious crew straight out of a Mike Leigh film. A Tuscan comedy of manners and errors, beautifully observed and painfully funny.' Meera Syal

Ideal holiday reading. (Good Book Guide)

TUSCAN SOUP is a thoroughly, unashamedly, gloriously romantic romp through the Italian countryside with a motley, hilarious crew straight out of a Mike Leigh film. A Tuscan comedy of manners and errors, beautifully observed and painfully funny.' (Meera Syal)

All the right ingredients; given a good stir; delicious outcome! (Jenni Murray)

Treat yourself. Buy this book and savour the delicious ingredients in Tuscan Soup. (Sue Townsend)

A cure for the blues. Lou Wakefield knows how to make us happy. (Dorothy Rowe)

I loved the novel: I saw myself in it and all of Tuscany. It's tightly written, it's very funny and once started, couldn't be put down. (Miriam Margolyes)

Book Description

A hilarious romantic comedy which takes place during a momentous summer holiday in Tuscany

I read this book very quickly because I was totally captivated by the characters and the fast moving story. It was funny, moving, and, as a man, quite enlightening.
I believe Lou Wakefield has a new book out soon. Can't wait.

As below, I found this book a wonderful read on holidays but don't leave it behind! It is also a great book to bury yourself in if you are a bit down - it makes you laugh and cheers you up and you can't put it down! Loved the characters and the setting is just perfect.
